Peter Cole Mouldie Scow - DXF format


The Peter Cole cold-molded scow design was the top dog in the Australian Moth class in the 1960's (before wings). It was superseded by the double-chine, plywood Imperium design. Here is a dxf file of the Cole Super Moth (he pushed the centerline hollow very hard on this Super Moth). This design would make a good wood strip project for someone who wants a round-bilge scow Moth. Dimensions in the dxf file are in meters.

Station spacing is:
  • Station 1 - 76 mm.
  • Station 2 - 304 mm.
  • Station 3 - 608 mm.
  • Station 4 - 912 mm.
  • Station 5 - 1216 mm.
  • Station 6 - 1520 mm.
  • Station 7 - 1824 mm.
  • Station 8 - 2128 mm.
  • Station 9 - 2432 mm.
  • Station 10 - 2736 mm.
  • Station 11 - 3040 mm.
  • Station 12 - 3333 mm.
